Structural engineers can take part in an OpenBIM process with the help of the BIM-Connector.
The BIM-Connector enables collaboration between architects and structural engineers.
With the BIM-Connector you can import CAD models in the form of IFC- and SAF files.
Physical model with assigned material
This is what the BIM-Connector can do for You
The building data is processed and then presented to you as a 3D building representation with additional property data. With this data a physical model and then an analysis model can be generated. You can export this data to the FRILO design solutions "Plates with Finite Elements PLT" and "Reinforced Concrete Column B5+". A further connection to programs such as the "Building Model GEO" is planned for the subsequent versions.
With the BIM connector, you benefit from:
- Considerable time saving
- Optimized workflow
- Faster communication between project participants
- High quality projects
- Avoidance of manual transmission errors
- Fast response to changes
- A stronger focus on your actual work:
structural analysis and design
The BIM-Connector saves you the monotonous and time-consuming task of creating the building model by defining its individual parts. It also eliminates manual transmission errors and prevents data loss. Thus you receive a high-quality analysis model. This gives you more time to use your engineering expertise as an engineer in the actual structural calculation and design.
